What You Need to Know About Core Cutting Line Technology

Different sorts of enterprise have their own priorities when it comes to core cutting line solutions. While all need a full integration approach with core stacking units some will favour high output rates and others highest possible flexibility. There again, some businesses will need to prioritise low burr cutting and minimal wastage, especially those engaged with cutting through expensive materials. For others, the maximum sheet length to be processed may be an issue while, for others, the lamination width may be a big consideration.

In other words, every company that is considering making an investment in a core cutting line solution will need to weigh up the pros and cons of any system they opt for. Helpfully, the expertise at Tuboly-Astronic AG means that customers can find the perfect system for their particular requirements and will often find that what they choose not only meets their current needs but exceeds their expectations, in many cases. Read on to find out more about the high-quality, Swiss-engineered core cutting line technologies available today from Tuboly-Astronic.

Bespoke Solutions From Standard Systems

As demonstrated at internationally renowned events, such as CWIEME Berlin 2019, the core cutting line solutions offered by Tuboly-Astronic are based on standardised concepts. From these, top engineers in their field can work with clients in order to produce solutions that meet specific requirements. In some cases, this can mean that some very highly specialised cutting applications are catered for. The key to making this work, of course, is an innovative approach to cutting technology in the first place.

The Different Cutting Line Modules Available Today

Given that no two manufacturing businesses will have exactly the same needs, the core cutting lines made by Tuboly-Astronic are able to be put together in a modular fashion. This means that, for example, you can have a combination of different processes set up within one solution. To get going, you might have a single decoiler set up, or even several of them, if needs be. Beside the standard strip-aligning, roller feeding system and shearing module you can include one or two V-notching tools. Other available modules include highly adaptable hole punching tools which can operate with a transverse or longitudinal positioning system, depending on your preference. Then there are slot punching modules and tip cutting tools. The list goes on.

A Comprehensive Series of Core Cutting Line Machines

Having taken a brief overview of the sort of cutting modules you can arrange in a line, it is important to understand how these are put together into a true business solution. The answer – from Tuboly-Astronic, at least – is to provide a truly comprehensive series of core cutting line machines. What are they and what are their key features and applications?

Standardised Compact Machines – Type CCC

The CCC series is a cost-effective solution that is designed for standardised cutting jobs where space may be at a premium. Able to cope with 250, 450 and 650 mm lamination widths, two shearing modules and one or two hole punching modules can be added to it along with a V-notching tool, if required.

Modular Machines – Type CCM

Among the most flexible core cutting line machines you could find, the CCM series allows for 450, 650, 850 and 1000 mm lamination widths to be processed by a high number of modules. It is possible to fit one or two slot punching tools as well as four tip cutting tools, for example. The CCM series can equally accommodate two shearing modules, up to two hole punching modules and the same number of V-notching tools.

High Speed Machines – Type CCH

As its name suggests, the CCH series is built for high-speed, yet reliable cutting jobs. Designed for 350 mm lamination widths, the series comes with four hole punching tools with a longitudinal positioning system fitted in order to reduce the number of stops. It is also able to cope with a V-notching module and two shearing tools set at different angles. It is important to note that any modules fitted to the CCH series come supplied with automatic positioning systems which means they can be set up in a way that simultaneously processes as many punches as possible in order to save time.

90° Cutting Machines – Type CCR

The CCR series of cutting machines are designed to process lamination widths of 250 and 450 mm. They are precisely engineered to enable the efficient production of 90° cut core sheets for three types of core – reactor, choke or but lap. Each CCR series cutting machine can be equipped with a shearing tool set at 90° plus multiple hole punching module which have an optional transverse as well as longitudinal positioning system.

Shunt Reactor Core Machine – Type CCS

Purposely made to cut the specific shunt core sheets of a round reactor core, the CCS series is able to be decked out with numerous modules. These include two square punching tools, up to two chamfering punching tools and a pair of L-punching modules. Providing all of the flexibility you might need with shunt core sheets, this series is capable of processing lamination widths of 500 mm.

Full Integration

Despite the wide selection of core cutting line machines, you could opt for, it is important to note that each of them can be set up to work in a fully integrated with Tuboly-Astronic’s stacking machines, too. This is a key consideration for lots of manufacturing enterprises with a requirement for reliable automated cutting and stacking processes working in tandem with one another.

Given that Tuboly-Astronic has gained a strong reputation in the industry for providing genuine solutions that integrate well, you should not hesitate to make contact and find out how much their systems can contribute to your future success.
